A nice book but could be better and thinner!

I first bought Nigella's Express and then found How to be a Domestic Goddess in a charity shop and loved them both. I have made a huge amount of recipes from Nigella Express with a lot of success. I work in a shop that sells everything for the kitchen and I always tell my clients that I am a Nigella kind of cook: everything has to be quick, easy but make a maximum of impact! When recently I found this book in another charity shop for an extremely good price I had to have it. I have read it from cover to cover but I haven't tried any recipes yet but, being a very experience cook I got a good feel for the overall quality of the book. The recipes are quite nice although very basic but that is Nigella's speciality. I like her stories too but I think that they were spread over many pages, which was not necessary. I would pay the same price for a thinner book rather than a thicker one which only tries to fill pages and will occupy more space on my bookshelf. The paper the book is printed on is very thick and there is a lot of empty space, not to talk about photos that are not very useful. The overall look is of a much older book, not good that that made me take away two stars: Sorry Nigella!!!! Other than that I think that I will make good use of this book as I made of the other ones and will go on making!
